Great Getaway

It was a great getaway - though we were traveling without our kids, it would have been a great place to bring them - more family oriented than anticipated

40th Bday Weekend Getaway

I spent an extended weekend here alone for my 40th birthday weekend and had a fabulous time!!!! The hotel staff were courteous and made me feel so special when they found out I was there to celebrate my birthday. It was like the news spread like wild fire among the hotel staff! The beach access is phenomenal! I enjoyed a facial and massage in the spa....priceless relaxation!!!! I also ate at the Salt restaurant and it was absolutely delicious!!! The only complaint was poor cell phone service inside the building, but I was there to relax and getaway so I really didn't care!!! I intend to go back during the late summer/early fall timeframe to enjoy the water as it was a little cool!

Fall getaway

Stayed in a club room. Exceptional service. Our two young children were welome. Room a little smaller than expected but adequate. 6 year old enjoyed Ritz Kids. Rooms including suites not nearly as impressive as Sea Island but service was better.

splendid resort

just a splendid overall experience. definitely pricier than your average hotel, but the service and aesthetics far exceed that of any other hotel/resort. fully equipped gym was great , the beach was beautiful, and the cute gopher turtles from the sand dunes were also an added bonus :)

Great Stay!

We visited this fabulous hotel and were treated like royalty! The food was good and service was great. The only thing that wasn't disclosed was the $17/day parking fee. I could have parked myself!

luxurious get away

We spent a long fall weekend at the Rtiz, this is off season so we sometimes felt like we had the place to ourselves. The downfall was that this was also the construction season with many rooms, including right next door, filled with noisy construction workers. But, the walks on the fabulous beach were wonderful
